Better than I remembered it.
24 April 2015 | by (California, USA) – See all my reviews

This is one of Michael Hui's directed comedies, which are dubbed "Mr. Boo" in Japan. Here, Michael Hui plays Johnny, who works as a teppanyaki chef at a restaurant own by his trigger-happy father-in-law (Hoi-Pang Lo). He and his grandfather are also mistreated by his wife, Ying. As a result, Johnny dreams of a fantasy island where he can go over with a calendar girl named Sisi (Sally Yeh).

The film has a solid plot and some laugh-out-loud slapstick humor. The movie does drag at times as it lacks some action and suspense. But, Michael Hui is definitely the highlight of the film as his unique brand of humor and comedy keeps us entertained. From his frustrated family life scenes to the disastrous Philippines vacation scenes, it's not a bad movie from start to finish. It has a good message about not letting people walk all over you - a good lesson to learn.

Overall, this movie was better than I remembered it when I first watched it many years before this year (2015).

Grade B-
